TUNNEL COST MODEL

The Tunnel Cost Model, developed at MIT's Department of Civil Engineering, follows in concept the current estimating practices of contractors, owners, and designers. It is able to treat explicitly many of the major uncertainties of tunnel construction, and its speed and level of detail make it ideal for evaluating alternatives in tunnel site location or method of construction. Because it can operate at several levels of detail, the Tunnel Cost Model adapts readily to the diverse needs of contractors, owners, construction managers, and engineers. This brochure highlights the main features of the model.
